Help me use Sonos with a mac compatible NAS
December 21, 2010 11:06 AM Subscribe
I'd like to transfer (iTunes) music off of an old PC and an even older iMac onto a NAS that plays nicely with our new Mac laptops and even newer Sonos system. I'd also like to use the NAS to automate backups for these two Mac laptops. And I'd like the NAS to back itself up onto a secondary drive. I'm new to networking and back-upping and would like a set it and forget it solution.

Specific hardware and software advice is definitely needed. Which NAS is reliable and easy to set up? How do I get the songs over to the NAS? What backup program is right for us? How do two computers use the same back up?
I'm a bit overwhelmed with options, and, obviously, a complete noob at this. FWIW, we use a cable modem connected to a newish Netgear wireless router.
